Lindell Audio 17X Compressor and Limiter Review

Dec 1, 2011, By Kevin Becka

I’m writing this review just a week after AES 2011 in New York City where the underlying theme was “hardware and lots of it.” One of the stand-out pieces of gear at the show was the single-channel, Lindell Audio 17X FET transformer-coupled compressor/limiter. Sweden-based Lindell is best known for its high-end Reference Modular I and II three-way loudspeaker systems, so making a compressor is a new venture. ...

Neumann KH 120A Studio Monitors Review

Dec 1, 2011, By Bobby Frasier

Neumann has been setting standards in front-end transducer technology for 83 years, as well as producing phonograph record-cutting lathes, mixing desks and even rechargeable batteries. Now, the company has entered into the world of speaker manufacturing via an arrangement with Klein+Hummel, a company with a long-standing reputation of producing exceptional speaker systems for recording, mixing and broadcast. Carrying the Neumann logo on their speakers, this tradition will no doubt be continued with utmost German precision, as witnessed in this first product offering. ...

M-Audio Fast Track C600 Audio Interface Review

Nov 1, 2011, By Brandon T. Hickey

With the release of Pro Tools MP this year, users have been buzzing about the possibility of an upgrade to M-Audio’s hardware. The company’s devices were preferred by many over their LE rivals because of its thorough feature sets, abundance of I/O and reasonable prices. The answer has come in the form of the new M-Audio Fast Track C400 and Fast Track C600 (reviewed here) USB interfaces....

Millennia and Electrodyne 500 Series Modules Review

Nov 1, 2011, By Kevin Becka

Since purchasing a Radial Workhorse 500 earlier this year, I’ve been enjoying the range of modules available for the 500 Series platform. I recently had the pleasure of using three products—the Electrodyne 501 preamp, the Electrodyne 511 inductor-based EQ and a pair of the Millennia Media HV-35 preamps—across a range of applications. What’s great about these and most other 500 Series modules I’ve used in session is how companies have gotten so good at squeezing personality and features into such a small enclosure. ...

KRK Rokit RP10-3 Powered Speakers Review

Nov 1, 2011, By Mike Levine

Most engineers would agree that it’s counterproductive and dangerous to mix at high SPLs all of the time. However, there are times during the mix and tracking/overdubbing processes when you want to really crank it up. Sometimes it’s just to do a reality check on your mix—if it’s something that’s going to be played back at high levels—or possibly your clients are asking to hear it loud. ...

PSPaudioware oldTimerME Review

Oct 1, 2011, By Michael Cooper

When PSPaudioware’s oldTimer was introduced a couple of years ago, I thought it was the best-sounding compressor plug-in for the price—a rock-bottom $99. But while its idiot-proof control layout and chameleon-like personality made it a user-friendly and versatile processor for basic mixing duties, oldTimer lacked certain features needed for jockeying advanced mixing techniques and mastering. ...

Sonodyne SM 100Ak Monitors Review

Oct 1, 2011, By Bobby Frasier

In the 1960s, engineering student Ashoke Mukherjee launched Sonodyne with the idea of bringing stereo sound to India; ever since then, he has been providing both consumer and professional audio solutions out of the company’s manufacturing facilities in Kolkata, India. I had heard rumors of Sonodyne for many years but never had the chance to hear their professional audio products. They now have distribution in the United States through the TransAudio Group out of Las Vegas, which gave me the opportunity to review their SM 100Ak Active Monitors. I found a range of pleasant surprises. ...
